I am building a new pc and just wanted to get advice on the parts I intend to use.

Intel Core i5 3550 3.3GHz LGA1155

MSI Z77A-G43 LGA1155

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3GB SC Signature 2

Corsair DDR3-1600 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance Memory Module Kit

Antec High Current Gamer HCG-620 Power Supply - 620W

Western Digital caviar blue WD5000AAKX 500gb, Sata6G , 7200rpm , 16mb cache

Gigabyte Sumo α Chassis

That's my build I have concerns tho. Will the power supply be enough for this system? And will I be bottle necking my graphics card with an i5 or will everything run at optimum capacity.

Thanks

Yes, all is compatible.

What is your budget? I may be able to come up with something that better suits your needs and performs accordingly.

That is excluding windows I already got that. My budget is 8500 rand (im from south africa) in dollars that would be $1000.

Would be interesting to see what you come up with thanks :) .

Use this parts list as a guide. I know you probably won't be able to use these same vendors. Sorry, I'm not familiar with your country and the vendors available in your area.

This will give you plenty of performance for your needs. If you need to lower the price, try dropping the GPU down a notch to the HD 7950.
